Title

Resolution directing the Department of City Development to amend the Near North Side Area Comprehensive Plan, part of the City of Milwaukee’s Overall Comprehensive Plan, to include a Strategic Action Plan and authorizing the transfer of funds from the Capital Improvements Advance Planning Fund to a subaccount for the Strategic Action Plan, in the 1st, 6th and 7th Aldermanic Districts.

Analysis

This resolution directs the Department of City Development to prepare a Strategic Action Plan for an area within the Near North Side Comprehensive Planning Area that, upon approval of the Common Council, will amend the Near North Side Area Comprehensive Plan, as part of the City of Milwaukee’s Overall Comprehensive Plan, and authorizes the transfer of funds from the Capital Improvements Advance Planning Fund to a subaccount for the Strategic Action Plan.

Body

Whereas, Section 66.1001, Wisconsin Statutes, requires that all cities adopt a comprehensive plan and specifies that comprehensive plans shall be updated no less than once every ten years; and

 

Whereas, On December 22, 2009, the Common Council of the City of Milwaukee (“Common Council”) adopted File No. 090884, which approved the Near North Side Area Comprehensive Plan (“NNSACP”) as an element of the Comprehensive Plan of the City of Milwaukee (“City”); and

 

Whereas, On April 11, 2012, the Common Council adopted File No. 111481 that approved the 30th Street Corridor Economic Development Master Plan, which amended the NNSACP; and

 

Whereas, The City’s procedures for comprehensive planning call for the creation of plan updates, based on emerging land use issues and opportunities, neighborhood input and other factors; and

 

Whereas, Since the adoption of the NNSACP and the 30th Street Corridor Economic Development Master Plan, there have been multiple projects, proposals, or initiatives in and around the 30th Street Corridor involving sustainable economic development, stormwater management, transportation improvements or recreational facilities; and

 

Whereas, One catalytic concept recommended by the NNSACP is the development of a series of public amenities, transportation corridors, trails and stormwater management projects that would tie together neighborhoods within the plan area; and

 

Whereas, There is a need to unify all of these efforts to ensure they are aligned, build consensus around the priorities among partner organizations and residents and set a larger vision that brings multimodal transportation investments, an improved public realm, new recreational opportunities and sustainability together into a single plan document to guide investment, identify priority projects, potential funding sources and responsible parties; and

 

Whereas, The creation of a Strategic Action Plan (“SAP”) as an amendment to the NNSACP will provide an opportunity for the recommendations of these efforts to be formally adopted as part of the Comprehensive Plan of the City; and

 

Whereas, The SAP recommendations will complement the 30th Street Corridor Economic Development Master Plan; and

 

Whereas, The SAP planning area is generally bounded by West Custer Avenue and Lincoln Creek to the north, North 20th Street to the east, West Burleigh to the south and North Sherman Boulevard to the west; and

 

Whereas, Pursuant to the update and amendment procedure for comprehensive planning adopted by Common Council File No. 161076, the planning process will involve extensive community engagement and public participation; and

 

Whereas, Public participation in the planning process is critical to ensure that the SAP reflects the goals of the local community and considers issues identified by key stakeholder groups; and

 

Whereas, The preparation of the SAP will require coordination with various community-based organizations to facilitate community engagement and technical assistance from outside consultants and funds are necessary for such services; and

 

Whereas, The current unencumbered balance in the Capital Improvements Advance Planning Fund cannot be expended unless it is transferred to a specific subaccount; now, therefore, be it

 

Resolved, By the Common Council of the City of Milwaukee, that the Department of City Development (“DCD”) is directed to amend the NNSACP; and, be it

 

Further Resolved, That the SAP amendment to the NNSACP will require approval by the City Plan Commission and the Common Council prior to its adoption as part of the overall Comprehensive Plan of the City; and, be it

 

Further Resolved, That the City Comptroller is directed to transfer the amount of $20,000 from the Capital Improvements Advance Planning Fund Account No. UR01218000A to be allocated to the Amendment to the Near North Side Area Plan Subaccount No. UR01280151 to be used by DCD to support creation of the amendment to the NNSACP; and, be it

 

Further Resolved, That DCD is directed to enter into such contracts and agreements, as necessary, to amend the NNSACP.
